Whales: Their Past, Present and Future exhibition book

The Museum book that complements Whales: Beneath the Surface exhibition.

 

Philip Hammond and co-authors dive into the underwater world of the Earth’s largest mammals in this informative guide, drawing on current information and recent discoveries to give the reader a comprehensive overview of these spectacular marine species.

 

This book investigates the ways that scientists monitor the current threats to whales, and the methods they use for conserving their future.

 

Accompanied by images of important cetacean specimens and spectacular photographs, Whales also explains the lifecycle, evolution, diversity and distribution of these majestic ocean giants. 

 

“This remarkable book is a rare beast – packing a blue whale-sized amount of information into a porpoise-compact volume. The authors, all researchers at the highly regarded Sea Mammal Research Unit at University of St Andrews, really know their stuff, and it shows in coverage of a wide range of aspects of whale evolution, ecology and, most fascinating of all, whale culture. In addition, Whales does not flinch from exploring our, at times, shameful relationship with these compelling animals and the seas and rivers in which they live.” BBC Wildlife
